Living Well With Back Pain

30 million Americans suffer with back pain every day; eight out of 10 can alleviate it without ever setting foot in a doctor's office.

This book aims to stop back pain in its tracks by teaching sufferers how to:

  • Sit, lie and stand in the most restorative positions.
  • Use ice, heat and over-the-counter medications safely and effectively.
  • Avoid prolonged sitting and bed rest.
  • Stretch and strengthen the correct muscles.
  • Adopt a healthy mindset and lifestyle.
  • Know when and how to find the right doctor when you need one.

While other books focus on just one kind of treatment, this book offers a full range of options from exercise plans to over-the-counter medications to prescription medications to choosing the right medical practitioner and surgery when appropriate. This book has everything a back pain sufferer needs to learn to live well.

Living Well With Back Pain is the collaborative effort of:

Robert B. Winter, MD, research consultant and a founder of Twin Cities Spine Center and Clinical Professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Minnesota, and author of hundreds of scientific articles on various spine problems.

Marilyn Bach, PhD, a health and fitness consultant, designer of the Shape Walking fitness program and co-author of ShapeWalking: Six Easy Steps to Your Best Body.
